Lunch: Thursday December 19th

11:30 am, Apache Mall food court, near B&N.


Technical Meeting/Social: Tuesday December 10th

December is too chaotic for hosting both a technical meeting and a social, so we'll do something geeky. K-LUG and PCIG will go hang out at Hobby Goblins for board and card games. Bring yours if you have some to share, last time they also had a few of the personal games of the staff available to introduce us to.

We'll list an official start time of 6 pm since that's the time of our normal technical meeting, but last time we were welcome to show up early if you want. And while they officially close at 8 if the store is unpopulated, last time we were playing nice so we were allowed to stay until after 9.

We're allowed to bring (or order in) food, and beverages. We'll take up a monetary collection towards pizza, and order at ~6:15, don't be late if you want in on the food. They aren't charging us for the use of this space, but they have soda (canned, Pepsi and Coke products) available there for sale as well as chocolate candy bars (ie Snickers and Twix); it would be nice if we "paid" for our use of the space by purchasing our beverages from them. If you bring your own beverage, please do so in resealable containers. Treat contributions are welcome, please be considerate of food that won't damage the games (directly or by making for very messy hands).

297 37th Street Northeast

But note you've actually got to turn north on East River Road NE before making an immediate left into their parking lot (they share lots with Little Bob's Auto Body Center).

Technical Meeting: Thursday November 14th

Dennis DeLorme

AATiny remote project, Dennis has provided the following description.

"Many of you know the Ardunio as an easy to use hardware and software development system for the ATmega328 microcontroller. For many projects the Ardunio board may be too expensive to dedicate to a project. There are smaller, cheaper ATmega328 boards that can be used if not all the options of the full Arduino board are needed.

But what if that is still too expensive for a very simple project? The Ardunio system can be used to develop code and program smaller Atmel chips like the ATtiny84A and ATtiny85 chips. The ATtiny84A has 14 pins, the ATtiny85 has 8 pins. The chips have a subset of the features of the ATmega328, for example only 8K of flash and 512 bytes of ram. They are less than $2 in small quantity and include an internal oscillator, so minimal external parts are required.

ATtiny84A http://www.atmel.com/Images/doc8183.pdf

ATtiny85 http://www.atmel.com/Images/Atmel-2586-AVR-8-bit-Microcontroller-ATtiny25-ATtiny45-ATtiny85_Datasheet.pdf

To use the the Arduino environment some addition files need to be downloaded and added to the sketchbook to describe the chips to the compiler and loader. Then the code can be written and the chip programed with just a few extra mouse clicks.

I will show how to set up the environment for the ATtiny84A and ATtiny85. After that we will go through a project to use the ATtiny85 to decode an IR remote control and control a couple of output pins."

Social #2: Saturday October 26th

Creative Reuse build day at the Rabbit Hole.

They're going to undertake several re-use activities. Planned are:

-Junk bots creation

-Construction of a secret door for the server room, with a bookcase and a fire alarm door pull

-Kalidescopes using some glass and mirrors


Then they're going to make a stop action video contest submission, this may happen after the 26th due to time constraints.

The Instructables general instructions are here: http://www.instructables.com/community/October-2013-Build-Night-Creative-Reuse/ .

We're meeting at the Toymakers hacker/maker space again. http://tymkrs.com/rabbithole/

REMOVED_FROM_SPAMBOT

Start time is 8 am, but since it's an all day/1 day event for the build, they expect people to come and go throughout the day as their schedule permits.


If you want to play at the Rabbit Hole on Friday night October 25th too, you can take a pumpkin (one you bought at Northwoods Orchard?) for soldering pumpkin lights and pumpkin carving night. Bring your own pumpkin and knife. Need to learn to solder? This will be a good night for that, bring your own kit or talk to the Toymakers in advance about other potential options (candle flicker simulator). I'm assuming this one is 6 pm. They typically order cheap pizza and pop, bring your $5 to pitch in if you want to partake.


For anyone who haven't been there before, their house is on the north side of the road up a steep and twisted driveway; park on the road with a parking brake. Walk up the driveway, up the steps, and ring the doorbell. into the open garage door, and into the house without needing to ring the doorbell.

Lunch: Thursday October 17th

Come for a hike via corn maze in Douglas at Northwoods Orchard.

Saturday October 5th

1 pm

$5/person for the adult corn maze. $3/kid for the kid corn maze. Other activities and items for sale, see their website if you're interested in apples, gourds, pumpkins, etc.

Unfortunately this is a weather dependent activity and even if the rain has cleared off, if there's too much mud it won't be a lot of fun.

I'll assess the rain, and if necessary call the farm after they open at 10 am to assess the mud level in the maze. If there's a cancellation, I'll send it out by email by noon (preferably by 11 am, toddler permitting) on Saturday.

We had to cancel due to muddy conditions. 1 pm game afternoon at Tina's, for anyone interested.

Technical Meeting: Thursday September 12th

Chris Henderson on oVirt.

oVirt, the first truly open and comprehensive data center virtualization management initiative, provides a venue for user and developer cooperation. The heart of the project is the open source code of oVirt, and the community is governed openly, modeled after the Apache Foundation, Eclipse, LVM, and many other well functioning Linux communities.

oVirt manages virtual machines, storage and virtualized networks. oVirt is a virtualization platform with an easy-to-use web interface. oVirt is powered by the Open Source you know - KVM on Linux.

This presentation will demonstrate setting up an oVirt environment and give you a taste of some of the features available.

Here are his slides.

Jameco electronic components build night and blog writing. Instructables will be sending us electronics to play with. In exchange, we have to write up 3 Instructables posts about things we did with them.

Standard Timer Single 8-Pin 555 Chip (10)

Resistor Assortment, 540 pieces (1)

Breadboard 3.25x2.125 (4)

Battery Snap, 6 inch (4)

Battery, Super Alkaline, 9V (4)

Grab Bag of Electronics Components (1)

LED Grab Bag - assorted colors and shapes (2)


How it works:

1. Have the Build Night: At the event build projects using parts from the Jameco electronics kit.

2. Post 3 Instructables: post 3 Instructables using the electronics from the kit. You are not limited to just these components, but projects must include parts from the kit. Projects can be as simple or advanced as you like. Anyone from your space is welcome to post an Instructable that counts towards the 3. These Instructables must include a link back to Jameco’s website. (Not posting these Instructables may affect K-LUG/PCIG chances to participate in future build nights).

3. Brownie Points (not required): after the build night post a forum topic on Instructables about your event. Include pictures, stories, etc... Here are two examples from the May build night Instructables ran (we didn't participate): Noisebridge and Makers Local 256. They may even feature our photo on their homepage.


Your pre-preparation homework: Brainstorm something to do with it.

As of 5/13, there were still no disc golf holes out at RCTC, and I'm not thrilled about bringing toddlers to East Park for several reasons. So we're going to go to Stewartville, and play disc golf at Bear Cave Park. We typically have a few spare discs to share among those attending, but if you plan on attending and need to borrow it's best if you can give us a heads up. Otherwise you can throw your own non-golf disc, a ball, or a shoe.

Jim Walts, retired IBMer is about to launch a new web based business called QPonCompass.com This business includes a website, database, an iphone and Win/7 based app (in fact he's looking for help porting his app to Android and wondered if anyone on this email list is interested in taking that on?) The meeting will be this Thursday:

When: Thursday April 11th - 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Where: RCTC Heintz Center Room HA107


More details about QPonCompass.com: We are technology lovers who saw a better way to share/deliver/distribute coupons. We recognized the dependence and love people have with their mobile devices, and how integrated into their lives these devices have become. Qpon Compass was created to provide shoppers with deals in the new venue they live in. The speed and movement of information makes paper coupons obsolete and bothersome. We created a program that makes it easy to publish, learn about, purchase, and redeem deals for both the shopper and the business owner. After spending time working for "mammoth technology companies", Jim and Kevin applied their skills and experience to the challenges of small business owners. Jim is passionate about making new technologies fun and practical; Kevin is a penny-pincher who strives to simplify daily tasks. Qpon Compass was born! Always forward-thinking, we are already looking at how we can make Qpon Compass better!

Let's piggyback on Winterfest.

http://www.rochestermn.gov/departments/park/activities/winter/WinterFest/WinterFest_Calendar.asp

I've tried to pick something cheap or free for the official social, but I'll also cite one activity that may be of interest for group members that has a higher entry fee if anyone wants an unofficial social (sorry, my family won't be making that one).

What: Horse drawn sleigh rides and bonfire, hot cocoa and cookies, plus free museum day at the History Center Museum.
Where: The History Center of Olmsted County, 1195 West Circle Drive SW
When: Saturday February 2nd, 1 pm
Cost: free will donation, which goes to Rochester Special Olympics.


Unofficial: Thursday February 7th, Bacon Fest! $20. http://baconfestrochester.wordpress.com/
Event runs 5-9 pm, I'll set a K-LUG meeting time of 6 pm. You'll have to look for someone else to gather around though, my family won't be attending this one.

Alternate method of payment: Tickets can also be purchased online by making a $25 donation to the Sunset Terrace Playground project. The deadline is Wednesday, February 6th at midnight. Tickets purchased online can be picked up at the event.


Social: Saturday, January 19th

The following schedule is tentative, because the official movie schedule is released on Wednesday or Thursday in a week for that weekend. That's not a lot of notice for planning a group event. But I've been informed by someone who movie-goes more than my ~1x/year that schedules don't tend to vary *too* much from week to week, so we'll use the current info to plan around.


Saturday January 19th
1 pm - lunch at Kingdom Buffet
3:20 pm - The Hobbit (2D) at Cinemagic
Not the fastest route, but the most straight forward, if you're unfamiliar with either location: http://goo.gl/maps/jnGFw


Details:
Lunch at Kingdom Buffet, followed by a movie. Feature movie is The Hobbit (2D), but there are several others starting in that same general timeframe if you'd rather attend something else. Alternatively, you can do just lunch or just the movie. We'll meet for lunch at 1 pm, 1639 N Broadway. The Hobbit is at 3:20 at Cinemagic (2171 Superior Drive N.W., by the old Westfire). If Chinese isn't your favorite, please don't be intimidated; Kingdom Buffet does have several buffet items that are more Midwestern acceptable (bbq ribs, teriyaki chicken shishkabobs, salad bar with jello, pudding, hard boiled eggs and fruit, ice cream, etc), it's our preferred spot to feed our toddler when we're out and need to put food in front of her immediately but don't want fast food.


Other movies being shown at approximately the same timeframe at Cinemagic:
3:00 - Parental Guidance (PG)
3:25 - A Haunted House (R)
3:40 - Zero Dark Thirty (R)
3:50 - Les Miserables (PG-13)
(unfortunately this is a much shorter list than it had been last weekend, we lost ~1/2 the options)

Both Mayo and Think Bank have discounted movie ticket rates, but I think those are only valid on non-matinee priced movies.


Lunch: Thursday January 17th

11:30 am, Apache Mall food court, near B&N.
